These simple great northern white beans are cooked in the slow cooker with bacon, seasonings, and the holy trinity of Cajun cooking; onion, celery, and bell pepper. 

I add diced carrots and herbs to the beans, and extra bacon. Angie's beans.

What You'll Need

  • 1 lb. great northern white beans
  • 3 to 4 strips of bacon (diced)
  • 1/4 cup chopped onions
  • 1/4 cup bell peppers
  • 1/4 cup celery
  • Dash salt and pepper
  • 1 cup hot cooked rice

How to Make It

  1. Let beans soak overnight in the refrigerator; drain.
  2. Put beans in a Dutch oven; cover with fresh water. Simmer beans until tender, about 1 to 1 1/2 hours.
  3. Transfer the beans to the slow cooker and add the bacon and onions; cover and cook on HIGH for 3 to 4 hours. Season to taste with salt and freshly ground black pepper.
  4. Angie's note - If the beans are cooked but the juices are too thin, you may have to boil the beans on the stove until it is thicker.
